You're famous! You're a trendsetter! Now…pay up!

I would be really interested to know how many other edubloggers got this email sometime in the past few months…

Dear XXXXX,

I’m contacting you on behalf of Sky Radio Network, the nation’s leading inflight media company, in regards to our upcoming “Innovation in Education” talk radio show airing worldwide on American Airlines during January 2008.

This special advertorial presents one-on-one interviews and compelling profiles of innovators in education — the companies and organizations who are on the forefront of education and are rarely heard from. We enlighten millions of business and leisure travelers by sharing success stories in ways you’ve never heard before.

To that end, I’d like to personally invite you to participate with your own interview segment. Your interview will air in a continuous loop for a full month on 29,000 American Airlines flights reaching 4.2 million potential listeners. This opportunity requires a small distribution fee (see participation details and costs below).

Regularly featured Sky Radio guests include President Jimmy Carter, Donald Trump, Steve Forbes, Charles Schwab, Sumner Redstone, Micheal Dell, Leeza Gibbons, Tony Robbins, Suze Orman, Ben Stein, to name a few. To hear recent interviews, click on www.skyradionet.com and www.skyradionet.com/colleges.cfm.

Please contact me asap to secure a spot, as space is limited. We have only two featured slots available and our commitment deadline is 3pm EST on Friday, August 17th (although we have until mid September to record your interview segment).

Again, see below for participation details and costs.

Due to our approaching deadline, we’re offering our last two spots on our December edition for only $3,995 (normally $7,500). Our commitment deadline is 3pm EST on Friday, August 17th.

Barbara has been working for a small liberal arts college in the cornfields of Ohio for about 15 years. In addition to teaching Spanish she runs a somewhat unconventional language center. Prior to this adventure in higher ed she taught high school Spanish and loved it.

She wishes she had more time in her life to play with her dogs, write, read, swim, do yoga things and watch the Red Sox. Preferably not all at once, although that could be interesting.

    Sadly…it is not spam…it’s real! The guy wrote back and said yes, I would have him big bucks to record me. Amazing

    You said yes to this scam? This is a major rip off

    Janey:

    Uh no, I did not. And even if I had $3K I could think of so many other things to do with the $$$$ instead of paying for 20 minutes of inflight blather.
